Waiting on Wednesday (#71)



You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass' pick

Endings and beginnings sit so close to each other that it’s sometimes impossible to tell which is which.

Nothing lasts forever, and no one gets that more than Tessa. After her mother died, it’s all she can do to keep her friends, her boyfriend, her happiness from slipping away. And then there’s her dad. He’s stuck in his own daze, and it’s so hard to feel like a family when their house no longer seems like a home.

Her father’s solution? An impromptu road trip that lands them in a small coastal town at Tessa’s grandmother’s. Despite all the warmth and beauty there, Tessa can’t help but feel even more lost.

Enter Henry Lark. He understands the relationships that matter. And more importantly, he understands her. A secret stands between them, but Tessa’s willing to do anything to bring them together—because Henry may just be her one chance at forever.


Expected publication: April 1st, 2014

Tanja's pick
When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature. Steeped in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's trademark mix of gripping action and breathless romance, this suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michelle Hodkin, and Lisa McMann.

Expected publication: January 28th, 2014

We'd love to see your picks so feel free to link them up.

Until the next time,

  3. Glass, I have yet to read a book by Caletti, though that cover is gorgeous! And Tanja, I already read Uninvited which was quite good. I think the idea could have been explored in greater depth, but for the most part it was a solid read. Great picks, ladies!

  4. GIRLS, YES! I'm waiting for these, too!!! I think Sophie Jordan is a good author and I very much enjoyed Firelight (though Jacinda really got on my nerves in Vanish). Also, I've yet to read a book by Deb, so I hope that this will be the first time I give one of hers a try (you know how it is with enormous tbr-s, some books just disappear to a big whole and you never read 'em O.o) and hopefully we'll all enjoy this pretty :)

  20. Love the cover of your choice, Glass! Plus, road trip! I love road trip reads.

    Tanja, your choice reminds me of that movie with Tom Cruise: Minority Report which I loved! I enjoyed Sophie Jordan's Firelight series, so this immediately piques my interest.

    Great choices, ladies! :)
